Mamajuana Bar

You would expect to find Mamajuana Bar in Washington Heights, the most densely populated Dominican enclave in US ...No! Cross on over to Brooklyn for a taste of this potent alcoholic elixir and its namesake bar. Blending cultures and music in this up and coming borough, you find mostly non-latinos and latinos-in-the-know kicking it up to Latin music, R&B, hip hop, and jazz on some evenings. Its gotten press in the popular New York Magazine and Village Voice as one of the happening bars of 2006. Visit while its still nouveau and not so crowded. But I doubt it for long.. I'll be around soon drinking mamajuana!
